My original plan was to buy her gift online for the sake of convenience on both of our parts - I wouldn't have to venture out to Target or Babies-R-Us and she wouldn't have to worry about lugging her gift from the shower house to her house.
So, I added my items in my online shopping cart and went to check-out. I was shocked to see that the shipping & handling was HALF of the price of the item I had put in my basket. Yikes!
Needless to say, I emptied my shopping basket and went to Babies-R-Us in-person this morning instead.
My question to readers is this: Is it cheaper to shop for baby items online or in-store? If you shop online, do you have any tips to help a frugal mom?
